Tech is responsible for answer all technical questions related to a purchase and assisting in determining the best purchase when using campus funds. Once a final choice has been made, something similar to the email template below should be sent to the person purchasing the item. Josh will make the actual purchase, and knows about all things financial, he needs us to finalize the purchasing decision and answer any tech related questions.
Based on our conversations of what is needed, the link(s) below is what needs to be purchased.
Please forward this information along with the funding information to Josh Cutler (firstname.lastname@example.org) for purchase.
If you have any questions about what is being ordered, please contact email@example.com, we'll
answer any questions and make sure the right pieces are being ordered. Josh will answer any
funding related questions.
When computers are ordered, we'll strongly encourage that the correct adapter be purchased, and provide the purchasing information so that it can be purchased when the request for the computer is forwarded to Josh. Ideally, it will just be listed with the computer as something to be purchased, with a little intro info that the adapter was added to the computer purchase since it will be needed if the computer is ever used a presentation machine in order to hook up to the AV equipment.
Tech will provide one adapter per year to an instructor (ie faculty/adjunct/clinician), tech has latitude to make exceptions in cases of need, but faculty should be responsible for care of their adapter. Beyond the 1/year, faculty will need to purchase the item (tech will provide any necessary info to facilitate), FISC/professorship or personal funds can be used.
The policy on students remains unchanged, loans with some sort of collateral so that we can track them down if it isn't returned.
The Law School supplies one primary computer to each employee. While this is generally a desktop you can discuss alternative needs for a laptop in lieu of a desktop with the tech department.
FISC and professorship funds may be used to purchase laptops and tablets. Both may be purchased, but not in the same fiscal year.
Each may be replaced on a three year cycle.
Neither FISC nor professorship funds may be used to purchase cell phones.
Neither FISC nor professorship funds may be used to pay for or reimburse data plans or internet service.
Orders for IT equipment should be placed by May 1st each academic year. Of course exceptions may be made in reasonable circumstances.
Any equipment purchased with FISC, professorship, or any other university funding source is the property of the Law School. Should you leave the Law School, all equipment purchased with university funds is to be returned to the Law School.
All IT equipment purchases are to be ordered through and delivered to the Tech Department so they may be set up and properly protected.
